ad that implies the auto bailout plan failed and chrysler will move jobs to china, a claim that chrysler has denied. romney spoke last hour in new hampshire, sharpening his attack on obama, and he's all but declared victory. he even called the event a victory rally. >> when i'm president, it's going to be very clear that we finally have an administration and a president and a government in the united states that actually likes job creators, that wants to help job creators. >> romney called yesterday's jobs report a sad reminder that unemployment is essentially unchanged at 7.9%. while the obama campaign touted the 171,000 jobs added with improved numbers in september and august. we have our correspondents spread throughout the battleground states to bring you the latest on the election and the final push for both candidates. dan lothian is in ohio where the president will speak next hour. dan, good morning. how is president obama handling the post-sandy power outages and flooding on the campaign trail? it's a difficult balance, i'm sure, between the two. >> reporter: you ma
heard this ad. is my job in danger? not true. executives from chrysler and gm came down hard on the romney campaign for it, calling it the most cynical kind of campaign politics n that area and every area here matters, you can tell that particular campaign gamut backfired. >> but mitt romney is still kpetive in ohio. >> this is a mainstream republican state. there is a reason no republicans won the white house not winning ohio. there is a deep republican tradition in this state. the fact that it's an obama fire wall is what is remarkable. this is a state that mitt romney could do well. he should do well. running the obama's campaign core strategy appealing to middle class voters, working class whites in this state makes a big difference when it comes to ground game and that critical early voting. mitt romney has had a real problem connecting to those folks. >> who is he leading with in ohio? >> president obama is leading with women. he's leading with centrist business 0 points. losing independents by two points. losing white men by a considerable margin. leading with folks wh
is swinging against the add that says in part, quote sold chrysler to the italians who are going to build deep in ki china. now them is fighting words when you are campaigning in ohio. he is challenging the facts in that add. the words are are literally correct but mid leading. in the auto bail out president obama allowed for the company fial which is owned by the italians to buy chrysler. so that part is true. but, they are now making some jeeps in china for the chinese markets. the adds make it seem as though they ar are taking american job and moving them to china. the ceo of the company has said that is not true. bottom line, it shows how much that auto bail out helps president obama with the voters in ohio and iowa. among non college white men in those states is higher than the other states anderson. >> hum, hinting. appreciate that. i spoke about that earlier. what is your biggest priority right now? >> well, getting power back up. i think we have done a good job on search and rescue. there may be elements of that. but the national guard has done a great job. getting lights on. changes p
failed and chrysler will move jobs to china. that's a claim that chrysler has vehemently denied. >>> on the other side of ohio, mitt romney sharpened his attack on obama focusing on the economy. >> now, i know when we're elected the economy and american jobs will still be stagnant. but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. i will spend my effort trying to pass partisan legislation unrelated to economic growth. from day one i'll go to work to help americans get back to work. >> romney called yesterday's job's report, "a sad reminder the economy is at a virtual stand it still." unchanged at 7.9%. while the obama campaign touted the 171,000 jobs added with improved numbers in september and august. >>> we have crews spread out across the country following the campaigns on the last weekend before the election. president obama will make his first stop today and paul steinhauser following mitt romney in pennsylvania. let's start with dan in ohio. what is on the president's schedule sph. >> well, you can expect that the president will continue to hammer away at this m
obama chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. >> i'm mitt romney and i approve this for a minute. >> forget for a moment that general motors and chrysler have decried this ad as false or misleading but in the ad governor romney says he has a plan for the auto industry. i'm curious what that is and why we haven't heard much about it until now until a week before the election. >> as ad itself says, lee iacocca and major executives support governor romney, and i'd point out people who were on the obama economic council are supporting mitt romney because he does have a plan on day one to turn this country around in terms of jobs. with the auto economy and everything else, you need to put people back to work, and on day one he's going to get the energy economy going and allow us to have the keystone pipeline open up, be able to drill offshore in my home state of virginia so we can get those good jobs going, and then he is going to, you know, increase economic opportunity for everybody, so that's why he's having so many people, even people on the president's own econo
, mitt romney passed along a story that ended up being debunked. he said chrysler was thinking about moving its jeep operations to china. that was despite the fact that chrysler had come out with a statement on its website saying no, that is not the case, they are not moving its operations of jeep over to china. so it is a sign that yes, they are concerned about that position on the auto bailout and he is getting pounded relentlessly on the airwaves with obama campaign ads talking about that very stance. >> brianna, you say the obama campaign is pleased with where they are in ohio. in terms of their ground game, in terms of the number of people they have on the ground in ohio, how does it compare to romney campaign? >> compared to the romney campaign, i think they would say that they are doing better in terms of their ground game. they say this about a lot of battleground states because they've had this in place for years now, since the last election, and it never really went away. so this is something they are emphasizing now and the strategy for president obama is really to show up
and chrysler into bankruptcy. and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. >> really? after all that federal bailout money, it's china that will get all the jobs? right away, the white house unleashed its attack dogs. >> they're running the most scurrilous ad in ohio. they assert that president obama forced chrysler into bankruptcy so the italians could take over chrysler. and ship jeep manufacturing to china. that's what the ad says. that's what the ad said. it's an outrageous lie. >> don avalon is a cnn contributor who also serves as a senior political columnist for "ne "newsweek" and the daily beast. joining from us youngstown, ohio. i know you've done a lot of reporting on this issue. is the ad inaccurate? >> reporter: the ad is inaccurate, but it really is resonating here in ohio, and not in a good way for the romney campaign. a lot of voters i've spoken to, they've heard about the ad, they've seen it and understand it's an attempt to muddy the waters and play fast and loose with the facts. that's not helping the romney campaign. voters i've spoken to say he didn
, particularly with this issue of jeep and chrysler, getting money in the auto bailout and supposedly transferring manufacturing, having intention to transfer manufacturing to china. that is not playing well in ohio. >> let's talk about how the polls are playing in ohio. it's not possible to overstate the importance of ohio in determining who is going to win tuesday. no republican has ever won the presidency without taking a state. let's take a look at very latest data. a cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows president obama with a three-point lead, but that's still inside the margin of error. this is a dead heat. that's why we call them swing states. a separate nbc news/"wall street journal"/marist poll shows a wired margin for the president, a six-point lead. john, do one of these guys have the clear momentum heading into tuesday, or is it still just absolutely up for grabs? >> well, christine, let's put all the partisan spin aside because there's a lot of that going on in the final days and hours of an election. what we've seen in the polls is president obama having a small but stead
of the manner in which general motors and chrysler were forced by the government to cut costs and become competitive. now all these good signs in the economy come with caveats. europe continues to weaken. the fiscal cliff looms ominously. but compared with the rest of the industrialized world and with the arc of other post-bubble recoveries, the united states is ready for a robust revival. this is partly because of the dynamism of the u.s. economy but also because of the timely and intelligent actions of the fed and the obama administration. the next president will reap the rewards of work already done. so it would be the ultimate irony if having strongly criticized every measure that contributed to these positive trends mitt romney ends up presiding over what she would surely call the romney recovery. for more on this, go to cnn/fareed for a link to my "washington post" column. and let's get started. >>> let's get straight to our terrific panel to talk about the economy and obviously a little politics, as well. joe klein is "time's" political economist. amity shlaes is director for the
's prescription. he said if gm and chrysler had gone into a free fall bankruptcy, they would have taken the entire supply chain and auto agency with it. he said that in 2010. so that's really what -- >> speculation is not accurate. >> it is because there was no way that private capital were going to keep those companies alive into a chapter 11 reorganization. they would have gone into liquidation. we would have lost not only those two companies, but the supply chain. >> what he said, these are his words, the american auto industry is vital to our national interest as employer and hub for manufacturing, a managed bankruptcy may be the only path the industry needs. ultimately, isn't that what happened? a managed bankruptcy by the u.s. government. >> a lot of help by the u.s. government and they would have never gotten there. the group working on this, went to his old company and said would you put some money in this in front of the bankruptcy. they said no. i think the u.s. had to step in at that paint and the taxpayers are going to get all or most of their money back as a result. >> i don't know ab
had allowed chrysler, which owns jeep, to move jobs to china. then not satisfied with that, since fiat owns part -- he said -- i can't make this up. he said that the president had allowed the italians to move jobs to china. >> all right. you're listening there to bill clinton. he's in indian river high school there in chesapeake, virginia, campaigning on behalf of the president who is campaigning in the swing state of ohio. of course, if you want to see any more of clinton's speech, go to cnn.com/live right now. all right. now to the latest on superstorm sandy. there are reports that at least 22 million gallons of gas are headed to the northeast to relieve in the shortages. gas rationing got under way in new jersey in 12 counties in an effort to cut down on wait times. people there had been waiting in miles along lines for hours to gas up their cars and get fuel for their generators. >>> all right. some voters in new jersey will face a pretty big election day challenge because of superstorm sandy. five days after the storm polling station managers are working to make sure the voting go
. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians who are going to build jeeps in china. >> political contributor john avalon is joining us from youngstown, ohio. john, i understand that, first of all, there has been some pushback from the auto industry execs over the ad. how is this playing out? >> suzanne, it is fascinating. the auto industry here is a political issue, it is a personal issue, it is a pocketbook issue. it is very much a central focus of the debate. we have spoken to senators on both democrat and republican sides of the aisle, senator rob portman and sherrod brown about this ad. take a listen. >> i say it is the most disingenuous ad i've ever seen. they know better. they know the auto rescue worked. they know that ohio reasons connected directly or indirectly to the auto rescue and they know that governor romney and my opponent's opposition to the auto rescue, they're trying to crowd the issue and it is pretty outrageous. >> it is their game to the extent it is reported in the media and that's all they have said, there is reports this could happ
that chrysler is going to make jeeps in china, and the president says that the ceos of these companies have asked governor romney to stop making the ad and that governor romney is trying to scare people. the president's top two advisors came to talk to the press and said this is back-firing on governor romney and people here don't like it. it is on the covers of some newspapers around the state. no evidence that's showing up in the polls, though, so we have to see how that plays out but they are betting big that the bailout is going to pull out an ohio win for them. we'll see. >> all right. jessica, thanks. jim, thanks as well. >>> joining me now, cnn political analysts gloria borger, david gergen and chief national correspondent, john king. john, the campaigns say they are ready for late night waiting for ohio returns. what do the latest polls tell us? >> if you look at our new poll today, it tells you the campaigns are right. we've got essentially a dead heat. the president has a 50% to 47% for governor romney lead among likely voters. that's within the margin of error. if you look deep i
of the weather. the debates about the economy. the campaign having a tussle right now over chrysler and gm. when biden and clinton koim to youngstown they slammed mitt romney for ads calling this claim that they were moving plants and jobs overseas on production within of the most cynical political moves he has seen and raw here in the final weeks. every voting counting, the economy issue number one here in ohio. >> not often you hear like a big business speak out about a republican ad but i guess that makes gm look bad, too, right? >> no. yeah. but very unusual. they tried to stay out of it and very unusual for spokesman to unload that kind of harsh language against the romney campaign in this particular ad. >> john avalon from youngstown, ohio. today's talk back question. will sandy change the election? facebook.com/carolcnn.

and when the president talks about he add aid new line to his speech today -- as recovered while chrysler said they weren't selling jeeps in china. those are jeeps for the chinese market. they are not taking jobs from the u.s. to do that, and so the president is accusing romney of being misleading. the romney campaign, you know, argues the facts are not misrepresentative. the crowd goes nuts when he said that today, and really went wild over it. he is getting a warm reception wherever he goes. these are clearly democratic crowds. >> on his assessment there, it's not a real representation of everybody there. thanks. we'll be getting back to you, and we'll bring this to you live as soon as the event starts. >>> earlier today mitt romney held a campaign rally in another swing state, wisconsin. romney told the crowd he is going to work for day one to get americans back to work. he blamed the president's policies for the state of the economy. he said a president has failed to deliver on the promises he made four years ago, like his promise to reach across the aisle and work with republicans. >
to china to import american jeeps to the united states. so jeep chrysler came out, fiat, the company, they said, absolutely wrong. general motors, have you ever heard of a company which has got a deal with whoever the next president is, come out and scold the presidential candidate the way there is. everybody we talked to says mitt romney is flat out wrong on this. and, again, we're puzzled that he would do that. he's competitive in ohio. this is a dead heat. statistically a dead heat between romney and obama. very puzzling to hear how this is going over here. >> and just to add to that, the swing voters we're talking to here, there is a sense that this issue resonated. the front pages, the local newspaper here is about romney on the auto industry. >> people are mad. >> and it is registering as an unforced error. people take it very personally here, their jobs, their local economy is connected to the auto bailout and stimulus package according to the mayor here. >> yeah. and, john, listen, the president has a tough sell. it may be an easier sell for mitt romney and the reason i say t
took gm into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italian who is are going to build jeeps in china. >> of course it turns out it's not true. the company ceo told governor romney himself knock it off. >> reporter: the squabble over that spot has made headlines here in ohio, the obama campaign hit back on air. >> politics at its cynical worst. >> reporter: on a stump the president is casting it as part of a larger message. >> massaging the facts when they're inconvenient to your campaign, that's definitely not change. that's the oldest trick in the book. yeah. that's what governor romney's been doing these last few weeks. and i know what real change looks like because i've fought for it. right along side you. and after all we've been through together, we sure can't give up now. >> report from cnn's jessica yellin. she's with the president in lima, ohio, right now. we'll speak with her later. we have reporters all over the country right now getting ready for tuesday's election. they're in all the key battleground states. much more coming up from all of these reporters. meanwhile, the
companies gm and chrysler to foreign. nowhere in the ads does it mention romney opposed the auto bailout. gm officials blasted the spot to a detroit newspaper saying no amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish our record of creating jobs in the u.s. and repate rating properties back to this country. polls receiving high marks for his handling of superstorm sandy, it's unclear how much the race has changed. hoping to recapture the momentum he had before the storm, romney recycled a line of attack he used presandy. >> he's been out talking about how he's going to save big bird and then playing silly word games with my last name, or first. and then attacking me day in and day out. >> reporter: the storm also interrupted romney's closing argument which he was supposed to start delivering last monday. instead, he has five days left to make his case against a president who has emerged from sandy perhaps now tougher to beat. wolf. >> jim acosta on the campaign trail with mitt romney. devastated barely begins to describe what happened to staten island, new york, in the wake of
